Classroom Connections
Last week Bright Star Touring Theatre presented Black History Hall of Fame for our preschool through 8th grade students.

The fast-paced adventure through the Black History Hall of Fame, was led by Dr. Daisy and Professor Paisley. The audience was introduced to over a dozen groundbreakers and hall-of-famers that have largely contributed to shaping our nation’s past, present, and future. Students saw everyone from Maya Angelou and Aretha Franklin to the Buffalo Soldiers and Mae Jemison and that’s just to name a few!
Kindergarten students spent time last week in the elementary science lab making models.
